What Issues Can Bad Drainage Cause?
Bad drainage causes a broad range of issues that can cost you money and also create unnecessary risks. For example, bad drainage can erode your landscape beds, mulch and topsoil much quicker, shortening the life of your investment. Flooding is one of the greater risks involved with bad drainage. By not allowing the water to flow properly, the water buildup can flow into your home. Lack of water flow can also wear down your house’s foundation, which can be catastrophic. Still water can also create ecosystems of life that can become a nuisance or risk for humans and pets such as mosquitos.

French drainage is one of the most popular approaches to drainage systems as it is effective, discreet, and can end up looking amazing. We do this by using a minimally sloped trench, beautiful river rocks or washed gravel, and PVC/Plastic piping. We use this system to direct the flow of water to a safe direction, and away from your house’s foundation. French drains are a very dependable, beautiful approach to draining water systems. Although it can be costly, it is very worth the investment.
Downspouts and diverters are usually attached to the home or business structure, and can guide water away from the building from roofs and problem areas. Many times these downspouts can experience leaks or compromises over time that will create water retention.
We begin by examining your current diverters issues, which can be a quick and affordable fix to your current water retention issues.
Landscape Drainage Pop-Up Emitter
“Pop Up Emitter” installations create pressure releases in areas that consistently experience water buildup. Pop-up emitters work great with downspout systems and in areas with no “cuts” to the curb. Although very effective, it may not be enough to protect areas with flash flooding or heavy rain.
Trench Landscape Drainage
Building a trench properly is not an easy task, and takes a certain level of experience to create effectively and beautifully. These trenches must consider HOA guidelines, and a carefully measure slope and design in order to be effective. Using certain materials like river rocks and landscape fabrics can extend the life of your trench, as well as make it more aesthetically appealing.
